Hurricane Bingo ( Boynton Beach)
***** Hurricane Bingo, 6695 West Boynton Beach Boulevard, Boynton Beach, Florida 33437, (561) 364-7744.
Years ago, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats took our kids on a 7-day cruise–onboard, they played so much bingo that when we got hope they wanted to become Catholics.
A few days ago, a very dear friend of the Eats’ family-aged 91 passed away—at her funeral many “stories” were told about her-lifetime love affair with the game of BINGO.
That funeral and to a far lesser degree the Eats’ cruise got me thinking–Where do folks in my Boca Raton neighborhood go-to-play BINGO?
A quick consultation with my 76 year old neighbor Rita (who use to be a huge “adult slot arcade” player) and I got the heads-up to checkout Hurricane Bingo which opened in Boynton Beach in late January, 2014.
To make a long story short,
Yesterday morning, I took a ride “up” to Boynton Beach and checked-out Hurricane Bingo. Look! I really don’t know anything about BINGO, but I do know that whoever owns/runs this joint–must be doing something right as every seat in the house was taken. Hurricane Bingo was clean, brightly lit and the players’ chairs looked awfully comfortable to me. I didn’t play -I didn’t eat–but several customers told me that- all players get free breakfast-lunch-dinner and unlimited soft drinks.
So, if BINGO is your game (pun intended) you now know where “a” game is being played!
One final thought,
Although- I haven’t been closely following the on-going saga concerning- Florida’s recent passage of a law that literally bans- 100’s of slot-like game arcades…Jeff Eats’ take on the matter-tells me that these arcades were predominantly populated by the elderly-retired. These arcades weren’t hurting anyone. These arcades provided entertainment/meeting places for people…and to have passed a law banning them- seems like a pretty dumb move to me!
Hurricane Bingo is open 7 days a week 9:30am-late.
